's a question, what's the advice for do detroit? overlap, overlay, not an ip instant city in china, right? there's no unified government, it's fragmented at the bureaucracy level, and there's this capacity issue, serious capacity issue within government. what's the advice? >> well, i don't suspect that a lot of the entrepreneurs in this room who are the talent pool for the next economy in detroit are thinking how do i get a job with the city. so -- >> no career advice. >> no, but i mean, seriously. the young talent pool, the 20-somethings and 30-somethings are not thinking about the public sector as a career path. so let's just be blunt and honest. the city is not going to be able to harness the talent that's there that will get the city to the next place. so invert the question. not how are we going to hire those people, but how are we going to bring them into the process sitting where they are in universities, in the private sector, in the ngos that are dynamic and interested in the city of the future, and the city has to invent the way to do that. collaborate, create communities of interest,
of the month when traders prays their portfolios. meantime, new york city mayor is set to hold a news conference on sandy 45 minutes from now. we will go to that conference once the mayor begins his remarks. we'll hear from a number of ceos about how sandy has impacted their businesses. the heads of hartford financial and landry is among the top executives who will be joining us over the last few hours. how equity index futures are trading. will cease trading in 15 minutes time. the dow and nasdaq pointing d n down. as for europe, the action dominated by deutsche bank and bp. we do see green arrows across the board with a 1% gain in germany. >> at least 16 deaths blamed on sandy as the storm continues to wreak havoc on the northeast with new york and new jersey dechaired major disasters. overnight more than 200 patients have been evacuated from two nyu langone hospitals after backup power failed. millions on the east coast awoke without power or mass transit. an estimated 7.8 million are believed to be without power and experts say it could be several days before it is restored. mass
day. sandy strengthens and targets a paralyzed east coast right now. you have new york city basically shut down. coastal areas in new jersey, maryland, virginia, preparing for the worst. this is a massive, massive storm. and it could truly affect people from maine all the way down to north carolina. as far west as the great lakes. that is 900 miles from coast to coast. good morning everybody, i'm martha maccallum, here in "america's newsroom". bill: i'm bill hemmer. good morning of live today from cincinnati, ohio. it is the critical battleground state in the race for the white house only eight days away. sandy making her presence known on the trail. president obama canceling an hour ago a trip he planned to orlando, florida. he will monitor the storm in the white house. the romney team dropping fund-raising e-mails up and down the east coast. over the next two hours we will talk to the voters of this critical state, especially in the southwestern part of the state and talk about why ohio could be the most critical battleground state of 2008, martha. martha: you about first, bill, tea
. we in michigan have to decide in november whether to allow the state to come in to the city and as a public use to take over and print the financial manager were emergency manager for the cities that have financed the distress and take over the local government where they can come in and remove the city officials like the mayor and the city council. i don't think that's the the presidential candidate mitt romney had in mind when he wanted to say states have rights. what about the city's rights to elect their own elected officials? and help do they own? when you say government interference, i understand you were talking about the federal government, but i heard mitt romney say that states' rights, is it the rights of the state's coming into the cities to overthrow the local municipalities? if that's a big government, small government, i don't know, is it controlled government? i think they have a right to control their own destiny in their own city. so the public is on the ballot in november, and i am turning everybody in michigan to vote down. we don't need dictatorship. it
association of new york here in new york city are getting taxpayer dollars. yet we don't know if they're actually doing anything with that money. john: its new groups. not the same thing. >> the same directors, the same tax i.d. numbers, the same employee edification numbers. in many cases the same employees >> congress cuts them off and they just change names. >> i can tell you that when i were to the house oversight committee as an investigator we went to the inspector general's office, and an auditor told the committee staff when we found direct evidence of acorn housing misusing federal grant money, the auditor said, look, is $10 million. a $10 million grant. when you're dealing with that little amount of money we don't actually conducted on. as the state of affairs. john: but these are poverty workers. i assume most of them are helping people. there are a few bad apples. but so what if it's the same people. there were not all trying to help the fake punt break the law . >> these organizations are about politics, and that is white special concern if they are getting our tax dollar
of a discussion about what else the city can do to help the school district reach that objective? and i know that there is additional supportal funding that supervisor kim has introduced. and a number of us are supportive of that. but i would like to have an even greater discussion that goes beyond the specific amount of money. but what else is it that we can do to collectively reach that objective? because to the extent that resources are a big problem here, is there -- are there additional things that the city can do with the resources that we do have to help in this effort? and to me, that discussion will also involve a discussion about what different city agencies, what role they can play in this effort? you know, what is it -- what kind of support system is needed to help a student achieve academic success? and academic success doesn't just happen in the classroom. it's something that requires an entire community school district has the responsibility to make it happen. so i would like to figure out how we as a city and county can be even more helpful? because i think that we'r
sandy flooded cities, washed out bridges, and caused billions of dollars in damage. >> but new york city is making it clear it is back in business. mayor michael bloomberg rate in the opening bell at the new york stock exchange, which was closed for two days. >> the storm killed over 40 people on the east coast and caused unprecedented damage. >> life is slowly returning to normal in new york. on wall street, major stock their first two-day closure ine- over a century. emergency generators provided the power. most of lower manhattan is still in the dark. an unusual event in the city that never sleeps. >> you look uptown, and you see lights. you look downtown and it is completely black. i was driving with a partner of mine, and i said that i do not think we will ever see something like this again. >> it is scary seeing new york like this, but i am happy to be alive. >> a little confusion, but it is still not so bad. you can get around and maneuver a little bit, and that is it. >> sandy also took out the subway line, which carries 1/3 of new york's workforce each day. flooded tunnels and m
shore will be devastated. we will have record high tides in new york city. the only bright spot for new york city in this area is the fact that it has not rained a lot in the hudson valley. that rain will not force even the water to back up higher. this is a devastating storm. connell: how much damage are we talking about and how many days will it take to leave? >> tomorrow at this time, things will be leading up. the storm, and said of going by, will continue to move inland. the wind stays from the south and southeast. there will be people under water for 24-36 hours. you will see the storm gradually subside over the next two-three days. we will be lying around with cloudy, cool: julie damp weather for a few days around this. this kind of storm that is spread out, you have to understand that the energy of the storm is spread out through a larger area. new england sticks east. you are funneling everything into one area. the same thing happened in ike. it is a category two and i said no, bill, this will be a major hurricane for southeast texas. i knew the storm would tighten coming to l

chasing here. >> it's not cheap getting to the world series in any city. if you are trying to get there using public transportation tonight, the city of san francisco is urging you to use muni or b.a.r.t. we'll talk about that. i want to take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. a lot of people trying to get into san francisco right now. this afternoon before the game, you are likely to see the same senator grow as people are coming in. it does look good. as you can see, you will be waiting for a delay. also the morning commute on 880, northbound and southbound, the traffic is moving along in oakland. if you are driving to downtown oak, it -- it should be a nice drive to you. the commute is looking okay. there is slowing on 101 especially after 280 getting into sunnyvale. things will be much better by this evening. we have the torrential rain. cool and breezy. but the rain will be ending. temperatures will be in the 50s. we've had some rain coming through. nothing too heavy but the pattern is about to change. it's coming to an end here as we see the low responsible for it. morning
the major blowout at the top of citi group? stocks are burning hot the so is a city near. vikram pandit pushed out. the street send its approval and of the shares are back into the green. vikram pandit said he was resigning but charlie gasparino says he was ousted vikram pandit has said he is facing pressure from the board. to said there was no way this was his decision? coming up we have sheila bair live praising the city grew bored but we will ask your should city group be broken up? , a test doeth pressure? the market feels no pressure at all. off to the races with good news from europe right now we're up 111 points but look at the nasdaq charging ahead s&p 500 up more than 12. we have until. and we have the cfo. caterpillar and boeing joining at the top pushing the market higher this is a broad-based rally we have traders at the new york stock exchange and chicago mercantile exchange. yes the ceo was ousted but the broad-based raleigh, what are people talking about? >> how the averages just one week ago now the nasdaq broke through with the 50 day moving average and has ralli
outside the two main metropolitan cities. >> host: professor haddad, who are the players we have not heard of, large business leaders in syria, and what role are they playing in the current crisis in syria? >> guest: well, you know, the current crisis in syria probably has a different trajectory at some level, especially after the first few months. it became a different kind of thing. it started out as resentment and rebellion -- >> host: economic resentment? >> guest: it was mixed. it's really problematic to look at the arab uprisings and pin it down on one thing because we're talking about several decades of a particular kind of system that was politically inefficient and definitely undemocratic. there was economically efficient very early on, but then actually declined and became quite problematic in terms of the gaps between the haves and the have-notes, but all -- have-nots, but all of this combines for a reason to act, in the regime, people calculate irrational and don't act unless there's a positive outcome. when that took place, when that movement took place in tunisia and egypt, s
of them are unique but this is particularly unique because of the impact it had on new york city and the fact that it has disrupted business and will continue to disrupt it for some time given the subway system downtown essentials paralyzed and will be for some days. you have a combination of business disruption and the fact that some of the refineries have been affected on the east coast so you have the gasoline effect and price is up on gasoline and destruction and business as we put that together and it could lower fourth quarter growth as much as 1/2%. it will have an impact. it won't be horrible but it will be there. connell: it won't be positive. you see these things after a natural disaster, rebuilding, the construction industry will get a boost and that kind of thing. liz macdonald from fox business is reporting on this already. one of the things she said is it is not like -- using our money to pay for it, not like we're getting richer as a nation because of rebuilding its your taking government money giving it to a contractor or whatever the case may be. that has come up
